Albert did a phenomenal job with my wedding video! He was also a delight to work with! He was so patient and worked ever so hard (my wedding was a 12 hour event!) I think the hardest part for him was editing the video and making sure all the highlights I wanted were included in my video. He did not disappoint! I got every clip I wanted, and he incorporated all my favorite music and did everything I had requested. It's been a year since my wedding and recently watched the video again and all the best memories were captured! Thank you Albert for being the most responsive, patient person to work with and developing a quality wedding video that my husband and I (and now our daughter) will always enjoy!!!!

Amazing job not only was he early but he helped get everything ready in the hectic setup. Lawrence was not just my wedding photographer but he seemed to always be there whenever anyone needed a hand. The photos were great and I received them quickly! I would definitely recommend him to friends and family, he is easy going and was smiling throughout the entire event!

We recently hired Michael as the photographer for our wedding. Michael was great to work with. He was very patient with us on our wedding day as we tried to make sure that everything was running smoothly. Michael always responded to my emails quickly and was very helpful in answering my MANY questions for him. Our pictures turned out excellent. I highly recommend Michael Keel for any occasion.

Our experience with Cindy was outstanding, amazing, and overall incredible. Having Cindy as our Wedding Photographer was really the smartest decision we could have made. She is personable, knows exactly what she's doing and somehow managed to capture moments that we didn't even realize were taking place. It was like having a really good friend who just happens to be an amazing photographer. We wanted a photographer who could go with the flow. We wanted somebody who would know what to do and just simply fit in to our program and not be regimented. So he knows exactly what she's doing and will be the perfect choice for any bride or groom. If you're reading this and you haven't hired her yet and I encourage you to look beyond the five stars, stop looking and hire her. I can't give more than 5 Stars but I wish I could. Thank you again Cindy!

Sheila is not only a talented photographer but also very professional. She is very communicative and was a pleasure to work with. She was a joy to have around during the wedding day and was honestly a "fly on the wall" unlike other wedding photographers who are too "in it". The pictures she takes are beautiful and extremely well priced. I would not hesitate to work with her again. I actually look forward to it.

I got my sister an engagement style shoot in sanfrancisco as a part of her wedding present. I wasn't sure if she would like it (she isnt really that into pictures) but I am so happy that I did. They said that they had an absolutely amazing experience and that Andrea is literally the nicest most awesome photographer in the world. She brought champagne made the experience special, hung out with them, made them feel relaxed, took 2 hours of amazing photos at multiple locations, and then even gave them a lovely restaurant recommendation and then checked in after to see if they liked with. She was easy to work with, super helpful in arranging and planning everything, and a very fair price. Thanks Andrea!

I discovered Patrick's photographic work about 4 years ago, his attention to detail and sharp eye stroke me instantly and therefore it was a very easy decision to choose him as our official photographer for our wedding. As expected, we were very pleased by the results, he got back to us with some very professional images both on films and digital which were more than what we could have expected. Through his lenses he made us look beautiful and he captured perfectly the essence of the day. I am glad we worked with him, the images we will have, to look at for the many years to come, will still carry the same magic that was happening that special day.

We are so happy we found Eric as our wedding photographer. He was such a pleasure to work with. He was on time but we weren't ready yet. He was so patient and able to work around us. He really knows his craft and has a great eye. He can easily see a great photo opportunity and go with it. We appreciate his professionalism and attention to detail. We are very happy with our photos. Outstanding! We highly recommend Eric and his staff for any big event. Our wedding photos are beautiful. Thank you Eric!

William was an absolute joy to work with. He took special time and effort to make sure that the photos from my proposal were as beautiful as possible. When my new fiancee and I were late getting to our proposal site, William took the extra time to test and set up the shot. He even stayed to take some photos of us with our family. I cannot recommend him more highly!

Ryan took photos at our wedding party of about 40 people last weekend. The photos turned out great and he gave them to us right after the wedding on a disk! He showed up 15 minutes early, was super professional and not disruptive. I would use Ryan again for sure.

Fifi did a great job producing professional head shot photographs for me. She was delightful to work with, very customer focused, and extremely patient. Fifi made me comfortable during the shoot, had an excellent eye for details, worked on my pose, lighting, and background....all this in a public park with activity and people swirling about. The pictures came out great; flawless execution, which resulted in so many good shots to choose from, it caused us a delightful challenge. I think Fifi is an expert photographer, and a lovely person too, and would highly recommend her for any and all photographic needs. If this review doesn't convince you, just go look at her website and you'll be WOW'd. Thanks Fifi for a wonderful job; it was very nice working with you....cheers.

We hired Larry for our company event, he is very responsible, provides great work with excellent price. A lot of other photographers will try make extra by not providing a full service, with him all the planning and post editing are included. Larry is also great that when we were setting up the venue, he arrived early to help, as well as staying late to help us clean up. Great guy!

I've been modeling for about a year now, and the only reason I was even able to get my foot in the door a fraction of the way was because of Nico. He was the first person I ever shot with. Since that time we have worked together numerous other times. My favorite thing about Nico, besides his obviously gorgeous photographs, is how comfortable he makes me feel when we shoot. I love pushing the boundaries of my art and being able to work with Nico is the only way I'm able to do that. Nico loves what he does and it shows 100% of the way through his work. He cares about making me, and every other model he's worked with I have no doubt, feel respected. This is a huge problem in the industry, but photographers like Nico are hopefully the forefront of a big change that needs to happen. I use so many photo's that Nico has taken of me in my portfolio, and my agent loves them .

Rich Jarvis was the photographer for our wedding, and I couldn't be happier with his thorough documentation of our big day. Rich has a great eye and gives good direction. He listened to what we wanted too. He got pictures of all major objects and our guests, plus awe inspiring shots of us. He's equally skilled at candid shots, picking touching and funny moments. He also has a very calming presence which is so important on such a nerve racking day. I highly recommend hiring him.

We hired Lara as our wedding photographer this summer in San Francisco. The short version is, hire her! Don't even think twice, you will be more than satisfied with the results. Lara arrived at our venue a few minutes ahead of schedule, set up quickly and proceeded over the next several hours to capture every magical moment with extremely high quality shots. She was unobtrusive, never in the way or distracting and always in the right place at the right time. She does amazing things with the lighting that is available, and has a knack for timing her shots. She is also an expert with image processing. I can honestly say that even the b-roll was loaded with amazing shots and she let us keep every single one. By the latter half of the day, when we toured the city for post-wedding pictures, we got to know Lara a person a bit better as an individual. She is a really cool person, very friendly and easy to talk to. So the bonus on top of amazing pictures was that her company is top-notch as well. And the trifecta of the whole experience was the total cost: her price is extremely competitive, especially considering the incredible quality of her work. She easily earned a 10/10 recommendation!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.
